An Owensboro fire Department rescue boat helped retrieve a fallen barge worker out of the Ohio River Monday morning. According to media partner 14News, the OFD boat responded around 12:30am to a tugboat to help get the worker out of the water. The other workers on the tugboat were able to pull the worker to safety before OFD got there. The rescue boat brought the man to shore, where he was then taken to the hospital by ambulance. He was wearing a life jacket.
